... enjoyed on an almost daily basis! Why can’t Australia have markets like these?!
When I say we walked everywhere, I seriously mean we walked and walked and walked!! There is no better way to see a city, and BCN is ideal for walking, with a grid like street system similar to New York, so it is pretty easy to find your way around even without a map. The first day we walked from our apartment passed the Olympic port area (made for the BCN Olympics in 1992), and all along ...
... and then they place you in a line of about 5-6 people, in a group of lines all very close to each other, with maybe a total of 50 people in each location. We were dismissed and about an hour later we setsail. Later, I went to dinner at about 6:30 PM. I chickened out and didn't go to the dining room but instead went back to the Windjammer. There are even more choices at dinner! Jade is a part of the Windjammer that offers Asian food—tonight it was Chinese. ...
... and when our food came out it was super tiny. That's because we were at a tapas restaurant which is just tiny servings of food intended so you can eat several dishes. I got prawn and noodle paella. It was okay but I wouldn't get it again. The noodles were very bland and the prawns weren't deveined which I do not like. After lunch we headed to a nearby mall and had a look around because apparently you can design your own havaianas (which are things ...
... arriving in Barcelona was knowing that I'd see some familiar faces again. Conveniently, Jess, Roxy, Jess, and Will were all in Barcelona when I got there. We all got to meet up one night for some fun in the clubs. I really love meeting new people while traveling but after a while, it gets tiring reintroducing yourself every few days. It's nice to hang out with some friends that already know you and that you already know. It's just a ...
... the desk speaks NO ENGLISH!. UGH!!! Finally by showing her the information on the rental car key which we had she tells us where the car is located. 190 euros later (fine and towing) we have the car back and are trying to find our way home...but of course Maria thought we needed a little more fun in our day and did her right,left,right turn most of the way back to the apartment where we crawled up the spiral stairs and passed out. To be ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel 1898 Barcelona
I have stayed in some lovely hotels all over the world, and The 1898 is right up there at the top of my list of favourites.
open just 3 months, with a perfect location at the Ramblas AND still at a very reasonable price , one of the few (maybe the only) hotel in the Barri Gotic with a private indoor swimming pool and fitness center, staff is very kind and helpful, would love to return
Wow, What a great hotel! The location is right in the heart of La Ramblas and that's the best place to be if its your first time to Barcelona.
You have to stay here
Husband & I went to Barcelona for weekend & totally recommend hotel 1898 to everyone. Best location, really stylish, excellent service, just cannot say enough good things about it. Will definitely go back again. Only problem is that we won't want to stay anywhere else so will have to go to Barcelona everytime we want a weekend away !!
I just came back from a 1 week stay at the Hotel 1898 and all I can say is that the hotel is fantastic in everyway. The rooms are a good size and the decor is collonial/modern and very relaxing, the bathrooms are spacious and very comfortable. Every room has Free WiFi and this is extremely convenient
The staff were wonderful with us, very helpful and patient with our requirements. And finally the location; you cant ask to be in a better place in Barcelona, it is right in the heart of all the shops and restaurants so you can walk around very easily.
I will definitely be staying there next time I am in Barcelona.
Hotel 1898 is in a perfect location in Las Ramblas, right in the middle of the main promenade. I stayed there for 5 nights Nov. 19-25 and had a pleasant experience with only a few new hotel bumps. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to make everyone feel welcome.
Having looked at many hotels in Barcelona and wanting somewhere central as we were only staying for two nights I booked the Hotel 1898 after reading ther review on this site... and was not disappointed.
We stayed at the Hotel 1898 last week for two nights. We had admired the building whilst walking down the Ramblas looking for the hotel. There is no sign on the Ramblas entrance. When we doubled back and located it by street number, we were greeted by a very smartly dressed genteleman who took our bags for us.
Excellent Excellent Excellent
Me and my wife just came back from Barcelona. We stayed at the 1898 new hotel for a week.
The hotel is lovely with a great location.
The rooms are PERFECT, we did not have even one small problem. The closed pool is very very nice, a bit small but you do not really need more than that.
We WILL be back.
Have literally just returned from a weekend at the 1898, just thought I would post my review for anyone else who's about to go! The hotel had only been open 2 weeks when we were there so it all felt very new and quite empty, don't think many people have been there yet!
